Amazon Firestick Prime Day Deals 2020
Below is a list of all the Amazon Fire TV devices (incl. Firestick) that you can expect to buy at massive discounts in this year’s Prime Day event. However, make sure to buy an Amazon Prime subscription before you add an item to your cart, as the sale is exclusive to Prime members.
Firestick (2nd Gen) with all-new Alexa Voice Remote
The Firestick (2nd Gen) got a refresh in 2019 with the updated Alexa Voice Remote. Compared to the previous remote, the latest one packs dedicated buttons for power, volume, and mute controls for your TV, soundbar, and AV receivers.
It’s a universal hybrid remote that uses both Bluetooth and Infrared signals, eliminating the need to pick up the TV/soundbar remote for essential controls.
Although the Firestick itself didn’t get a hardware refresh since its first launch in 2016, the 1.3 GHz MediaTek 8127D quad-core chipset is more than capable of handling up to [email protected] stream playback (No HDR support).
Due to the limited memory (1 GB), the device struggles to keep up with opening or switching between apps, but it does the job. Also, you only get around 4 GB of free space out of the 8 GB internal storage.
Besides, the 2nd-gen Firestick offers 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi support. If you want to connect it over Ethernet, you will need the Firestick Ethernet Adapter (max. 100 Mbps of throughput).
Original price: $39.99
Firestick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote
Amazon released the 4K variant of Firestick in late 2018 with the new Alexa Voice Remote. It packs an upgraded 1.7 GHz MediaTek 8695 chipset, paired with 1.5 GB of DDR4 memory that makes multitasking relatively smoother than the 2nd-gen Firestick.
Alongside Ultra HD (2160p) video output, the Firestick 4K also supports HLG, HDR10, HDR10+, and Dolby Vision technologies. It also gets a boost in the audio department, with support for Dolby Atmos.
You don’t necessarily have to have a 4K TV to use the device, as it also offers 1080p 60Hz and 720p 60Hz video output.
Similar to the 2nd-gen Firestick, the Firestick 4K comes with 802.11ac dual-band WiFi and 2×2 MIMO support. Furthermore, it is deeply integrated with Amazon’s Alexa eco-system.
Original price: $49.99
Fire TV Cube (2nd Gen) with Hands-Free Alexa
The Fire TV Cube is currently the most powerful device in Amazon’s Fire TV lineup. One of its best features is the hands-free Alexa integration, which you can use to navigate through the Fire TV interface without using a remote and playback your favorite movies and TV shows instantly.
The device has a speaker built-in, similar to what Amazon’s Echo devices offer. You can use it for smart home controls as well. Because of its client-side voice recognition capabilities, the device responds to voice commands almost instantaneously.
The Fire TV Cube packs an Amlogic S922X hexa-core CPU (up to 2.2 GHz), 2 GB of DDR4 (2400 MHz) RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage. Thanks to the beefy spec bump, the Fire TV Cube can handle up to [email protected] stream playback, with HDR and Dolby Vision enhancements.
The extra memory also makes up for a smooth app switching experience.
Fire TV Cube offers the same wireless connectivity features as the Firestick 4K, but it has an on-board Ethernet port with a maximum bandwidth throughput of 100 Mbps.
Original price: $119.99
Nebula 2.1 Soundbar – Fire TV Edition
The Nebula 2.1 Soundbar from Anker is a one-of-a-kind product that has Fire TV built-in. If you are planning to upgrade your home cinema audio system and move to the Fire TV platform, then this soundbar is all you need.
It comes with the Alexa Voice Remote, with dedicated power, volume, and mute buttons. You can mount the soundbar on the wall as well.
The Nebula 2.1 Soundbar offers 100W of audio output, with additional subwoofers and bass reflex ports on each side. Furthermore, you can change between several EQ presets and adjust the bass and treble manually.
Alongside HDMI audio and video passthrough, you can also hook up the soundbar to your TV over RCA and digital optical interfaces.
The soundbar shares the same hardware as the Firestick 4K, with support for up to 4K (2160p) 60Hz video output, HLG, HDR, and Dolby Vision. Note that it doesn’t have Ethernet support.
Original price: $159.99
Toshiba 50LF621U21 4K (2020) – Fire TV Edition (2020)
The Fire TV Edition Toshiba 4K UHD TV is an exceptional deal if you are planning to retire your old TV for a new one. It’s quite affordable for an Ultra HD TV that comes with Dolby Vision and HDR10 support, and it runs on Fire OS 7 software.
Although the main video source comes from the Fire TV, you can also plug in other devices (e.g., Blu-Ray players, game consoles, soundbars) to three of the onboard HDMI ports (one with eARC support).
The video output maxes out at 4K (2160p) 60Hz, and it supports the new AV1 video codec. It also integrates DTS Virtual-X internal audio processing.
The new 2020 model is slightly faster than the 2018 and 2019 models of the same TV, with MediaTek T31/L chipset (quad-core CPU) and 2 GB of DDR3 memory. In addition, it packs 8 GB of internal storage.
You do also get onboard Ethernet connectivity (up to 100 Mbps), 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.2 support.
Original price: $329.99
Prime Day 2020 Deals on Firestick Bundles
Amazon also offers accessory bundles for Firestick and other Fire TV devices. Since they are quite popular among shoppers, there’s a chance that you can grab a bundle for cheap on the Prime Day event. Here are some of the product deals you should look out for:
Firestick 4K Bundle with Echo Dot (3rd Gen)
Although the Firestick 4K does have Alexa integration, you can get a hands-free experience by linking an Echo device to it. The Firestick 4K and an Echo Dot bundle give you just that.
Alongside using the Echo Dot for controlling the Firestick 4K player, you can also summon Alexa to ask questions, order items from Amazon, or control your Alexa-compatible smart home accessories. You can use the Echo Dot as a Bluetooth speaker as well.
Original bundle price: $79.98
Fire TV 4K Essentials Bundle
The Fire TV 4K Essentials Bundle includes the Firestick 4K, as well as a remote cover (red) and a USB power cable. The remote cover fits the all-new Alexa Voice Remote, and it keeps your remote protected from the daily abuse and micro-scratches.
You can use the USB power cable to power the Firestick 4K directly from the USB port of your TV, saving you from installing additional power outlets and tedious cable management. However, the bundle is shipped with the regular wall adapter as well.
In addition, the Fire TV 4K Essentials Bundle gives you a year of complimentary access to the Food Network Kitchen subscription. It’s worth mentioning that you can buy the accessories separately if you want to.
Original bundle price: $82.97
